All 8th graders applying to Brophy's Class of 2022 are required to take our entrance exam. We use the High School Placement Test or “HSPT” entrance exam by Scholastic Testing Services. It is a five-part, multiple choice test of verbal, quantitative, reading, mathematics, and language skills. The exam takes approximately 2 1/2 hours and contains about 300 questions designed to see how well an 8th grade student performs. In addition to the HSPT exam, students will also complete a 25-minute writing prompt on the day of the exam–it is not part of the HSPT but part of the Brophy application. Students are allowed to take the exam only once.
A COMPLETED ONLINE APPLICATION RESERVES YOUR SEAT FOR THE ENTRANCE EXAM. If you are taking the exam on Saturday, January 20, then the online application must be completed by January 19. If you are taking the exam on Saturday, January 27, then the online application must be completed by January 26. The remaining required application documents such as recommendation forms and transcripts can be turned in as late as January 31.
If you choose to take the entrance exam at a different Catholic high school, please make sure that you include the Brophy registration code on your scantron (you will receive instructions that morning) to ensure that we receive your test results in a timely fashion. Contact the other school directly for specifics on registering for the exam and cost.
